At McLuskey, McDonald & Hughes, P.A., our construction accident attorneys are familiar with the law and the realities of construction accidents. We represent people who have been victimized by unsafe conditions, and injuries caused by negligent conduct. Contact us if you have been injured in a construction accident.
Accidents at construction sites include everything from ironworkers falling off steel beams, crane accidents, people being hit by falling debris, walls collapsing onto people, and injuries caused by substandard equipment or insufficient guards. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration, or OSHA, maintains guidelines meant to ensure workplace safety. When OSHA rules are not followed, injuries that result may be found to be the result of negligence. It is important to determine who was in control of the job site.
Workers’ compensation may restrict a person’s right to recover for an on the job injury. However, just because someone is hurt at work, does not mean that they are ineligible to recover money outside of the workers’ compensation system. There are exceptions to that limitation that your lawyer should be familiar with. Important issues of control, intentional conduct, construction site security, reckless conduct, the contractual relationship of the parties, and the nature of the working relationship may allow you to recover more money than the workers’ compensation system would alone.
